    Default Ideas please

    My DH is going through a rough time right now (ok, to be honest our whole family is) and has recently had to return to a line of work that takes him away from the family more often than not. He has also really struggled job-wise for the past couple of years and my meager income has barely kept us afloat. We had a surprise fourth baby (who we love dearly!) and nearly 10 grand in medical expenses last year, we lost our home in January, the place we were renting was taken back by the bank last month and we had to move again, and we are really wanting to move closer to family, but haven’t been able to find jobs to take us there… the list could go on and on…

    I want to create a reminder of how much we have and why we get up and go through the motions each day. I am thinking of a slide show of one or two songs celebrating our family, our happiness and our blessings. It needs to be ten minutes or less, something we can watch as a pick me up on rough days. I was hoping that you wonderful and creative ladies might have some ideas on songs or even photo ideas to make this idea come to fruition.

    ALL ideas and thoughts welcome!

    What a great idea for you to do! The only song I can think of that always makes me feel better and is one of my favorites is "Here Comes the Sun" by the Beatles. Can't wait to hear what your final outcome is!

    I mainly listen to Christian radio, but there is a new song out there titled "Lead Me" and I love how it's a prayer asking God to lead us with strong hands.

    Other than Christian songs, I listened to country. I'll be thinking. Not sure if you are into either types of music though.

    Hugs to you!!! One song that quickly comes to my mind is "You Raise Me Up" by Josh Groban. I'm a huge fan of his and he really has a lot of inspirational/uplifting beautiful music. Another of his newer uplifting songs is "Smile" from his Awake album.

    I think here comes the sun is a great choice. I can't think of anything myself right now, but I'll think about it and come back if I have any ideas.
